Switch Status Update Problems & Other Strange Things

Post by enigma » 02 Jan 2017 00:21

I bought the razberry controller about a month ago. It worked fine for about 3 weeks then..... The Associations in the expert UI are all red... It does not matter what I associate the device with they are all still red. Also the Status of the light switches are not updating in the UI..... I cannot figure it out and I am about to the point I am going to bag the razberry for something better...

I have tried the following...

1. Excluded and Re-included the devices (Multiple Time)
2. Formatted the Pi Multiple times and started from scratch.
3. Made Sure the Firmware was up to date.
4. Reset the API Through the advanced UI.
5. Reset the Controller

None of this has worked. If I turn a switch off in the UI it updates perfect. However if I switch the lights on manually the status does not update in the UI. All of the interviews for the switches have completed according to the UI. I am lost. I am using GE, and Zooz Branded Switches and dimmers, I am also using a schlage lock on one door, and a Zooz ZSE40 Multi sensor. Total Devices 22.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

My Problem seems to be similar to this thread....

However the thing that is puzzling me is that all of this stuff was working and for some reason it is now not working.

The Status seems to be updating in the log file properly so the system is seeing the button press however the UI is not making an update properly...... Strange... I just cant see how it worked a few days ago then all of a sudden it just stops. All I did was add a few more switches to my system. Still trying to figure it out.

So A Little more information on the switches that are not allowing associations at all they are GE ZW4005 switches they don't even show any associations..... They just tell you to re interview..... After Multiple attempts I still can not get them to even show a lifeline association. Although the spec sheet says they support it.....

From Spec Sheet:

Group # / Max Description
Nodes 1 / 1 Z-Wave Plus Lifeline
Supported Command Classes (13):
All Switch Association
Association Group Information Basic
Configuration CRC16 Encapsulation
Device Reset Local Firmware Update Meta Data
Manufacturer Specific Powerlevel
Switch Binary Version
ZWavePlus Info


And this is what my interview page shows:

Well, I have figured out how to get the switches to update. But how about the life line and association problem? Anyone have any ideas?

Hello Enigma,

I have the same issue, on 2.3.7, all z-wave devices (mostly qubino switches, a dimmer and a roller shutter) aren't updating their status.
you said you managed to get that to work- may i ask how?

Thanks
